In the tin trunk are diaries, photgraphs and scrapbook collected during the authors lifetime.
A very personal but fascinating autobiography of an English career naval officer who “saw the light” and emigrated to Australia. Apart from his exciting, disparate and well described naval adventures during World War Two and thereafter, the book describes a globe trotting life where barely a minute has been wasted.
Throughout, from his childhood, the author has remained closely connected, almost glued, to the sea.
